Compton Rug (brown)
Needlepoint kit for rug
Designed by William Morris' successor Henry Dearle in 1896 for Compton Hall in Wolverhampton it is one of our most successful designs. The rug is a fabulous Beth Russell interpretation of the Morris & Co wallpaper and fabric of the same name. To achieve the same soft dark background colour as the original Beth has blended 3 different colours. Still in production today, the fabric can be found at the beautiful Liberty store in London.
It also comes in a blue colourway.
